Hydrogen-rich water upregulates propionic acid

Our group just published another hydrogen paper in journal Nutrition, adding the upregulation of propionic acid to the growing list of potential metabolic pathways influenced by exogenous hydrogen. This secondary analysis of previously collected data suggests that fecal SCFAs are responsive to dietary hydrogen in overweight adults, with a significant increase observed in propionic acid levels among participants who consumed hydrogen-rich water for twelve weeks compared to those who consumed tap water. This finding holds potential significance in addressing metabolic dysregulation, as propionic acid has been linked to appetite control and weight management in populations with metabolic conditions.
